1. I skipped this step last weekend because nothing was making me happy. I didn't feel good at all, and I just gave myself a little time to recover and rest and breathe. For the most part, this week was much better. I am feeling better, I am feeling more organized, and I am feeling less stressed. That is making me happy. Breathing and feeling at peace.
2. Laundry. Our washer died a couple of weeks ago, so we went out last Monday evening and got another one. I'd picked out the one I wanted online, found it easily in the store, a salesperson came right over to help us, and it was delivered and installed the next day. Now I am so very grateful for clean, dry clothes. Many thanks!
3. The freedom of expression in television today. A new season of The Walking Dead started last week. Earlier today, we started watching season 2 of Stranger Things, and I am amazed at how many opportunities today's television showrunners have as far as outlets, genres, and talent at their fingertips. Kudos to those who make great television for us, whether it be for the studios, for cable networks, or for independent broadcast channels like Netflix and Hulu. As a kid who grew up with 3 channels (4 if you include PBS, which we never did), this is amazing, and I am grateful.
